Schemes: Expose the Enemy

Scheme 2: Deception

Job 1:6-7, Genesis 4:1-12, & John 8:42-47

 

How do we deal with Satan’s scheme of deception?

 

1)   Start with reality.  (Job 1:6-7) a.    Is the Devil real? Yes! 

“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.”  Ephesians 6:12

b.   Why is this important to know? 

Because the most dangerous enemy is one that you don’t know is there.

 

2)   Ask yourself, “What does God want me to do?”  (Genesis 4:1-12)

a.    Be aware. (vs. 6)

b.   Make the right choice. (vs. 7a)

c.    Listen, focus, and resist sin! (vs. 7b)

 

3)   Know who and whose you are. (John 8:42-47)

So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world.  Let there be tears for what you have done. Let there be sorrow and deep grief. Let there be sadness instead of laughter, and gloom instead of joy.  Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor. James 4:7-10

Final Thought:  Don’t be deceived.  Listen to the Lord, focus on Christ, and be obedient to the Holy Spirit.
